Adult Orthodontics Woodside

If you live in Jackson Heights, Woodside, or Elmhurst, Queens, and you decide that it’s finally time to do something about your misaligned or crooked teeth, then visit orthodontic specialist, Dr. Rekha Gehani. Thanks to advances in orthodontics, including the advent of Invisalign, there truly is no age-restriction to receiving orthodontic treatment. Although orthodontic treatment is primarily aimed at school-aged children, adults can now appreciate the benefits of braces when they visit Woodside adult orthodontist, Dr. Gehani in Queens. There aren’t any real differences between moving healthy teeth in children or adults, as both suffer from the same orthodontic problems. However, it is important for Dr. Gehani’s adult patients to understand that orthodontic treatment may take longer due to the maturity of the bone.

Occasionally, adult patients seeking orthodontic treatment with Dr. Gehani may require ¬†different treatment planning because of complicating factors such as lack of jaw growth. Jaw surgery may be necessary for adult orthodontic patients because they have experienced bone loss, which can limit the amount and direction of tooth movement. Bone loss in adults can be a consequence of periodontal disease, a progressive gum disease that deteriorates gums and supporting bone. After a consultation with Woodside Queens orthodontist, Dr. Gehani, you may need to receive periodontal treatment before your orthodontic treatment to undo the damages of gum disease. However, if you do require orthognathic or jaw surgery before beginning your orthodontic treatment, Dr. Gehani does perform this surgery so you won’t have to visit an outside specialist.

No matter how old you are, orthodontic treatment can be successful for you, especially when you visit an adult orthodontic specialist like Dr. Rekha Gehani. Let us properly align your teeth and correct your bite, so you can have a brand new smile!  For more information regarding adult orthodontic treatment and orthognathic surgery, please visit our offices located in Jackson Heights, Queens.
